After chatting with a co-worker I decided to try making some apple crisp. But rather than make a whole big batch, I wanted to try just one apple's worth of apple crisp. So this is the recipe I concocted.
- 1 medium apple - peeled, cored & sliced
- 1 pat butter
- 1 to 2 teaspoons Splenda Brown Sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- dash of salt
- Healthy Homemade Granola (approximately 1/4 cup, or to your taste)
In medium skillet, melt butter and blend in Splenda Brown Sugar, vanilla and salt. Add sliced apples and allow to simmer until apples are heated through, but still remains slightly crisp (only about 3 minutes). Add granola -- enough to cover the top of the apples, about 1/4 cup or however much you prefer.
Because this is such a carby treat, be sure you're balancing this with plenty of protein if you're on the WLS plan. And remember that Splenda Brown Sugar contains real sugar - it is half real sugar and half Splenda - so if you have a sugar intolerance, use this with caution.
Be warned... this is DELICIOUS and addicting!
